She was my small group leader my freshman year of high school. After hearing her speak, I knew she was a woman that I wanted to be like her when I grew up. She told me she was a photographer and took pictures on wedding days for a living. I couldn’t believe that being a photographer was a full time job and you could make a living doing it. Fast forward the next few years and she inviting me alongside her to weddings and portrait shoots. During that same time I watched and celebrated with her as she grew her family and become one of the best mothers in the entire world. Kassie has blessed my life immensely and I thank the Lord for giving me such an incredible friend, teacher, and mentor in my life!
